How many times have you wished for just a few more minutes of sleep in the morning? If you’re the type of person who prefers the snooze button on your alarm over turning it off, ask yourself this:
If you knew you were going to die today, would you really want that extra minute of sleep?
They say that one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day. My mornings are usually so rushed that “one small positive thought” is the last thing on my mind. My goal is to get my daughters and I ready and out the door before breaking into a sweat, losing my voice from yelling, and spontaneously combusting from working my body too hard before it has a chance to warm up. Mornings can be exhausting right?

I envy women standing at the bus stop with their kids, dressed for the gym, hair done, with just the right amount of makeup (which baffles me because I can barely see straight in the morning). A GREAT morning for me, is when I remember wear my bra before the bus comes! I may not share the same early morning drive as some mothers, and I’d love to know what they put in their morning cup of Jo, but I do know this…
It’s something we all share regardless of being ready to conquer
the world our kids at 6am… Every morning is precious gift; it’s another chance for you to live; to create the life you want; to be with the ones you love; and to open your eyes… because there are so many beautiful things in front of you just waiting to be absorbed. You choose whether you want to experience the beauty of life, or sleep through it.
